Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Sunday, July 7: Chad Reineke, Louisville: 8 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K . . . At 31, Reineke is not the sexiest prospect in the room; not a prospect at all, you might say. But the tall Ohioan has been a godsend to the Bats this year, working 100 innings so far with a 2.86 ERA. In his last five starts--all between six and eight innings--it's 1.23.
Also notable . . .
Luke Moran (Billings): 6 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K. The righthander, a 14th-round pick in last year's draft, has an early 2.66 ERA.
Ty Washington: 2-4, 2B. Looking good at .354.
Wandy Peralta (Dayton): 5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K. The lefty entered after starter Mike Saunders faced only one batter (elbow).
Tanner Rahier: 2-4, RBI.
Emmanuel Burriss: 3-4, RBI.
Jason Donald: 2-3, R.
Neftali Soto: HR #10, 3 RBI.
Yorman Rodriguez: First HR for Pensacola, 10th overall.
Juan Silverio: HR #10, 2 RBI.
Aidi Guzman (AZL Reds): 3-4, 2B, 3B, RBI. It was a career day for the big (6-4, 235) Dutchman, a 20-year-old first baseman.
Oviel Florentino: 3-4, 2 R, RBI for the 19-year old second baseman.
Jose Fernandez: 2-4, R, 3 SB. Another center fielder who can run a bit, apparently.
Soid Marquez: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K.
Jose De Sousa (DSL Reds): 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K. A 21-year-old lefty from Venezuela.
Diohanky Mejia: 3-4.
